PHENIX CITY, Ala. – Authorities say a man who was attacked by a dog in eastern Alabama has died from his injuries.

Phenix City police responded to a report of a dog bite early Tuesday morning. Officers found 70-year-old Frank Cobb suffering from the attack.

Cobb was taken to a hospital in Columbus, Georgia. His family told WRBL-TV that he was then transported to an Atlanta hospital where doctors attempted to re-attach his limbs.

He died Tuesday evening and is being transported back to Alabama for an autopsy.

A dog that fit the description of the one that attacked Cobb was later found dead on U.S. Route 431 after being hit by a vehicle.
